Sixto Doroteo's story

Sixto, 51, lives in his own home with his wife and their two children, aged 15 and 9. Their children are currently in school. Sixto has had a business selling clothing for 10 years; this has given him a lot of experience that enables him to obtain better earnings. His business is located in his home, and he also goes out to sell from place to place. He's attracted a lot of customers, because people know that everything he has is of good quality, and his prices are affordable.

Sixto want to make a new investment in his business, but he lacks the funds to do so. This is why he is requesting a loan to purchase blouses, skirts, T-shirts, pants, and everything he needs for his business. He is certain that he will be able to pay off the debt, and he also hopes to bring financial security to his household.
